Mordecai

Today's reading: Esther 2:5-11 and 19-23

Esther 2 also introduces us to Mordecai, a relative who stepped in to take care of and raise young Esther after the death of her parents. From the information we're given, Mordecai fits the bill of being what I would call a "good man" on pretty much every front. While we don't have an abundance of information on him, the few verses and details we are given are telling. His example is one we can all strive to follow.

How would you describe Mordecai based on the descriptions and details contained in Esther 2? What lessons--family, adoption and/or parenting--did you see from his example? What one thing stood out to you the most about Mordecai? Tami
